The RIPE 74 meeting that’s being held this week in Budapest, Hungary provided the opportunity for the three authors of the ripe-554 document “Requirements for IPv6 in ICT Equipment” to get together again to discuss an update.

ripe-554 was originally published in June 2012 and aims to provide guidance to governments and enterprises on their requirements for IPv6 compatibility when tendering for ICT equipment and support. This is based on Best Current Practices and serves as a template for organisations that need to produce IPv6 specifications, as well as for organisations interested in bidding for contracts.

Whilst ripe-554 is widely referred to, the original authors consider that five years on might be a good opportunity to review the content and revise the document if current best practices warrant it. It should though be stressed this is a community-sourced, so other contributors are encouraged to participate in this process through the RIPE BCOP Task Force.
